The Wilderness of Manitoba’s Orono Park, Free Chicago Show

by oz on April 21, 2011

Whew. Sorry for the long delay in HearYa activity, but we just migrated to a new hosting provider after a couple hellish months with GoDaddy. As I waited for the migration to happen, I looked through a long list of albums and bands that we had planned to discuss and The Wilderness of Manitoba jumped to the forefront with the release of a new EP called Summer Fires and a single called “Orono Park.” We were huge fans of their album When You Left The Fire and “Orono Park” floored me when I first heard it.  It’s a perfect summer evening tune that starts off with plucking strings before the soaring harmonies kick in. The pace quickens with the introduction of percussion and the song bounces out of melancholy into a modest celebration.

The band is from Toronto and recently booked a show in Chicago at The Beauty Bar on 5/19. It’ll be FREE, so there’s really no excuse for not going.  They will also be stopping in at Shirk Music + Sound for a HearYa Live Session.
